Aussie star Jack Holder, 25, and Great Britain racer Dan Bewley, 22, join the 2022 FIM Speedway Grand Prix line-up.

The first and second substitute stars step in for Artem Laguta and Emil Sayfutdinov following the FIM’s decision to suspend Russian riders’ licences until further notice.

Holder was named as the first substitute rider for the 2022 series after some impressive seasons across Europe’s top leagues, which saw him heavily tipped as a Speedway GP star of the future.

As the younger brother of 2012 Speedway GP world champion Chris Holder, the 25-year-old has been a regular visitor to the Speedway GP pits over the past decade. But now the Torun and Sheffield rider finally gets his chance to shine on the sport’s biggest stage in his own right alongside fellow Aussie icons Jason Doyle and Max Fricke.

Holder made his Speedway GP debut as a track reserve at the 2016 FIM Australian Speedway GP in Melbourne, scoring two points on the night Chris famously topped the podium. The 2020 Australian Championship runner-up also served as a wild card in the 2020 FIM Torun Speedway GP double-header, scoring 12 championship points across the two nights.

Meanwhile, Bewley is called up after being named as this season’s second Speedway GP substitute, joining GB heroes Tai Woffinden and Robert Lambert.

The Cumbrian racer wrote his name in British speedway folklore when he teamed up with Lambert, Woffinden and Tom Brennan to help Great Britain to their first world team title in 32 years at the FIM Speedway of Nations Final in Manchester last October.

Bewley was drafted in for day two of the event on his UK home track when Woffinden crashed out on day one, and joined forces with Lambert to beat title favourites Poland 5-4 in the Grand Final.

The 22-year-old also helped Polish side Wroclaw win their first PGE Ekstraliga title in 15 years last season, as well as leading Belle Vue into the SGB Premiership Grand Final. He lines up for Wroclaw again in 2022, but has swapped Belle Vue for Swedish side Smederna. Bewley will also compete in the Speedway European Championship after taking fifth place in the 2021 series.

He has previously made one Speedway GP appearance as a track reserve at the 2018 FIM British Speedway GP in Cardiff.

The FIM board’s decision on Russian riders’ licences can be changed at any time with immediate effect – depending on the evolution of the situation in Ukraine.

The 2022 Speedway GP series gets underway with the FIM Speedway GP of Croatia – Gorican on April 30.
